Archived — TPC Status Report - November 1, 2009

The Industrial Technologies Office (ITO) publishes a semi-annual status report to enhance transparency of its legacy program - Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC).

TPC provided repayable contributions for innovative research and development (R&D) projects contracted between 1996 and 2006.

TPC projects were long-term (up to 30 years) commencing with an R&D phase, followed by a benefits phase - the period in which a product, or a technology, could generate revenue for the company. In such cases, repayments would flow back to the program according to the terms and conditions of the company’s contribution agreement.

Nearly 26 percent of active projects are still in the R&D phase and repayments are not expected for a number of years. That being said, TPC repayments are in line with forecasts and are continuing to increase. The final TPC repayments are not expected until 2033.

TPC Program Highlights:

Total number of active projects: 234

R&D phase projects (repayments are not yet due): 61

Benefits phase projects (subject to repayments): 173

Total disbursements to date: $3.0 billion

Total cumulative repayments to date: $495.0 million

Total repayments collected in 2009-2010: $26.6 million

Years remaining until final TPC repayments are expected: 24

Explanatory notes:

Contribution Date: is the date that a company signed its contribution agreement. If a company has more than one project, the date indicated is the earliest contribution agreement signing date.

Company: is the name of the legal entity which currently has one or more TPC contribution agreements.

Authorized Assistance: represents the maximum amount contracted. As the R&D progresses and a project reaches its conclusion the final disbursed amount could be much lower. The total authorized assistance for all TPC projects is $3.5 billion.

Repayments: represents the information that a company has allowed ITO to disclose. Should a company have several contribution agreements its decision to disclose repayments may not extend to all TPC projects.

Indicates that repayments are not yet due on the company’s project(s).

Indicates that the company has not provided ITO with an authorization to disclose repayment information. Repayment details are protected under TPC agreements signed prior to August 2006.

Indicates that a company has multiple TPC projects - some may still be in the R&D phase with no repayments owing.
